Biosketch:

Dr. Jill Cameron is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy at the University of Toronto, an Adjunct Scientist at Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, and Associate Member of the Graduate Department of Rehabilitation Science. She obtained her Bachelors of Science in Health Studies from the University of Waterloo, and Masters of Science and Doctorate from the University of Toronto. Her primary research interest is to examine the experiences of family members who assume the role of informal caregiver for individuals with disability. She has conducted research in the area of stroke, critical illness, mental health, heart failure, and advanced cancer. Jill’s aim is to understand caregivers’ needs and develop timely and relevant programs to assist them with their care-giving activities and pursuit of other valued activities and interests. Jill developed the Timing it Right conceptual framework to inform development of caregiver support programs as caregivers’ needs change across the care continuum. Her current work builds upon this knowledge to develop and evaluate interventions to support informal caregivers.
